Automotive Tools Every Weekend Mechanic Must Have

Posted by on 12/18/2012 to Info News
Being a weekend mechanic is no easy task, but the amount of satisfaction you’ll get from working on cars is priceless and well worth the trouble. The main reason why tinkering with cars as a hobby can be difficult, is because of the number of automotive tools you’ll need to purchase to make your hobby more fun and easy. There are so many different types of tools out there and choosing the right ones can be a chore. It is for this reason that there are a lot of guides on the internet that try and simplify your work by listing down the types of tools which are an absolute essential for any workshop. Mike Allen of Proper Mechanics lists down 10 tools which every mechanic should have, and they are: ratcheting box wrenches, a glass beading cabinet, an acetylene torch, a voltmeter, non-contact IR thermometer, ball drivers, air ratchets, plasma cutter, a clecos and  a fluorescent drop cord. These are tools which he claims to use everyday in his workshop.

If you are not convinced by the above  list then you can always look for other guides. This eHow article also lists the different choices of automotive hand tools for mechanics or you can check out this article written by David Thiel and Aime Fraser, the authors of Your First Workshop which talks about different automotive tools that every workshop needs. The internet is the best resource for you to find out about everything you will need to begin your hobby as a weekend mechanic.
